During Covid-19

While the church is closed there are still ways to give financially to St. Giles. 

  • PAR - If you have already signed up for pre-authorized debit donations, your tithes and offerings will still be processed in this way. If you would like to sign up please talk to Karenza. 
  • Mail- You may send cheques via mail.  Donations made through this way will be collected and processed once a month near the end in order to practice safe physical and social distancing.  You may mail your cheques to the church's PO Box.  The address is:
    St. Giles' Presbyterian Church, POB 12068
    Prince George, BC, V2L 0A8
    Please do not mail cash.  If you would like to donate but these options don’t work for you please phone Al, Johanna or your Elder and someone can pick up an offering envelope from your house. 
  • Defer- You may defer donations until the church re-opens and give in person then.
  • Tithe.ly - You may give through Tithe.ly.  See below 

 

Our Joyful Response To God
Giving is a joyful celebration of God’s generosity to us and a sign of our ongoing dependence on God. Giving is more than monetary donations. We open the doors of our homes for hospitality. We share our tools, our cooking ingredients, our vehicles, our knowledge, our skills, our recreation toys, and our time with the world around us. Through our generosity we support God's work in our church community and in the world.


Ways to Contribute Financially

Volunteer your time with one of our ministries

  • Speak with someone in the office to find out the various areas that we are currently looking for help in. Or take a look through our website and our bulletins and ask to join something that you are excited to serve God through.

Online and Mobile Giving

  • Tithe.ly - through our website or the Green mobile app. To use this option, it is important to create an account in order to access the full range of possible options, including keep track of your giving.  If you wish to give to more than the General Budget in each transaction, you have the option of four other choices by hitting the plus sign under the giving amount. Also, your member ID number is your envelope number.

 

 

Pre-authorised Remittances (PAR)

  • PAR or Pre-Authorized Remittance is a direct debit program that allows people to support the church through an automatic monthly withdrawal from their bank account. To participate in this plan, an individual must complete an authorization form. PAR Authorization Form.pdf (To download, right-click the file and select "Save link as.")

Offering Plate

  • During each worship service we collect an offering. Cash gifts can be made during this time. If you are attending regularly, please ask the Envelope Secretary for envelopes so your gifts can be receipted at the end of the year.

Will My Donations Be Used for the Purposes I Have Designated?

Spending of funds is confined to St. Giles' approved programs and projects. Our budget is available on the Annual Reports page.  All of the donations made to various missions projects go to those projects.  If the projected target is not met by specified donations, the shortfall is not made up out of the General Budget donations.

More information on various Missions projects that St. Giles supports can be found on the Missions page.
